Week of Sept. 25-29

Dear Prek Parents,
Reminders:
- Every Tuesday Homework is sent home. Homework should be back to school on Thursday. Please don't forget to send the folder back
- On Tuesdays with the homework we will send a bag in which you will have to bring something to school that begins with the letter of the week. This is to help us with our letter of the week manipulative center.
- Please make sure your child is only bringing toys of the letter of the week or the theme we are studying. We have been receiving daily, children with toys that do not belong to the letter or theme.

We will wrap-up September (Honduras’ Month) with an Early Childhood assembly. Prek is representing traditional dresses and traditional dances. This will take place at Discovery School campus on September 29th at 8:15am. Children have been practicing these dances and you are invited to this beautiful closure. 

Prek-“A” will be dancing Punta (they will have to wear garifuna clothing) and Prek “B” will be dancing “Candu Candu” (they will have to wear the Honduran traditional dress.)

This week we are going to continue working with the alphabet. We will be working on recognizing the letters with their sound, we will also focus on the letter formation, vocabulary of the letter, remember always emphasizing on the short vowel sounds. We will begin studying about the letter Ff. The vocabulary for this letter is: fire, fan, fox, fish, fork, five, feather, frog, flower, finger, four

Two children will be assigned each week with each letter. In this case, the children assigned should take at least five (5) items that they have at home that begin with this letter. Items should be at school on Monday and we will send them back on Friday. For this week we have Jimena (Prek”A”) and Juan Camilo. (Prek”B”).

***Note: On Friday, the assigned students, will have to share for 22 friends eatable things such as French fries, French toasts, fruits, fruit salad, letter Ff cookies, etc. for children to taste. We do this to close our letter unit.

The following link you will find a PowerPoint presentation with the vocabulary, in case you would like to review at home with your child.

We are attaching links of some of Letter Ff videos if you would like to listen and sing at home with your kid:

Some of the stories we will be reading this week are:
One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss is a 1960 children's book by Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel). A simple rhyming book for learner readers, it is a book with a freewheeling plot about a boy and a girl, and the many amazing creatures they have for friends and pets. One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish was part of the Beginner Book Video series which included Oh, the Thinks You Can Think! and The Foot Book.

The Rainbow Fish is an international bestseller and a modern classic. Eye-catching foilstamping, glittering on every page, offers instant child-appeal, but it is the universal message at the heart of this simple story about a beautiful fish, who learns to make friends by sharing his most prized possessions, that gives the book its lasting value.

In math, will be working with numbers. We will work on how to represent and recognize numbers using tally marks, ten frames, name of the number, one-to-one correspondence. We will begin working this week with numbers 0-7. We will be also be working with AB Patterns.


Our Nursery Rhyme this week is: “Five Green Spreckled Frogs”
We are attaching you the link of the videos of this song we will be learning throughout the week. We will learn two versions of this nursery rhyme. Just a little tip to have fun at home listening and acting out our song.

In Science we will begin our unit about Five Senses. If you have any books that are related to this topic, we will really appreciate if you let us borrow them from you.
